California Coalition for Child Health Research

Section 1


To build a highly innovative, collegial, and collaborative California Coalition for Child Health Research that will advance the health and wellbeing of all children in California (and beyond).


We will achieve this mission by a) creating meaningful partnerships by building a collaborative network of children’s hospitals, child health centers and clinics in California, and b) supporting multi-site, investigator-initiated clinical and translational research that seeks to: 

  • Advance new therapies and medical devices
  • Deliver high quality care to our diverse pediatric populations
  • Develop and evaluate pediatric prevention and health promotion strategies
  • Promote community health and wellness through community-partnered research
